In their recent article, “A Quarter of Humanity Faces Looming Water Crisis” climate contributors Somini Sengupta and Weiyi Cai explore the global and local implications of generations of over pumping without replenishing.
If we agree with Priyanka Jamwal, a fellow at the Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment in Bangalore, India that, “water is a local problem [that] needs local solutions,” then collecting stormwater runoff via the MaxWell® is the sought-after solution.
As Los Angeles literally sinks further into an “extremely high water stress level,” groundwater retention and replenishing continues to come to the forefront of the crisis.
“Water-stressed places are […] cursed by two extremes…floods and droughts,” said Sengupta and Cai furthering that, “the stakes are high for water-stressed places. When a city or a country is using nearly all the water available, a bad drought can be catastrophic,” and it will only continue to worsen without immediate intervention.
The greatest urgency is responsible and environmentally reassuring engineering. The MaxWell® is positioned to ensure water not only for the future generations but (now more than ever) for today’s generation. The MaxWell® system collects, treats, and infiltrates water at depths that refresh groundwater back into the aquifer. A crucial shift for the evapotranspiration cycle sustainability.
We can’t control the weather but we can control how we collect and treat stormwater runoff.
The time to incorporate environmental practices is now and it begins with you.
